The family of Evelyn Liberman will be gathering through the afternoon of Friday, November 15 at the Learning and Enrichment Center at the Pavilion at Glacier Hills, 1200 Earhart Road, Ann Arbor MI 48105 following the funeral services.

Evelyn was born in Detroit, MI in 1928, and attended Central High School. In 1947 she married Murray Liberman and remained happily married for 70 years. She and Murray ran Liberman’s Delicatessen in Detroit until they sold it in 1961. She then worked as a secretary in the Southfield school system and later opened a knit shop in Southfield. Eventually she worked for Hospice of Southeastern Michigan (now called Hospice of Michigan), where among other accomplishments she was instrumental in starting The Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network. In the 1970s she and Murray opened Liberman’s Meat Products; while there Evelyn worked on getting the Worker Compensation bill signed into law in Michigan.

She was the daughter of the late Sarah Milgrom Horowitz Kalish and the late Elia Horowitz; sister of the late Louis (the late Helen) Horowitz, the late Joseph (the late Doris) Horowitz, the late Max (the late Beatrice) Horowitz, and the late Lawrence (the late Phyllis) Horowitz; and the wife of the late Murray Liberman.

Evelyn and Murray moved from Southfield to Detroit and enjoyed living in the city for 31 years before moving to Glacier Hills Senior Living Community in Ann Arbor. She is survived by her children Anita Liberman-Lampear (Alan Lampear), Reena Liberman (Peter Nagourney), and Wallace Liberman (Stephanie Dickinson); her grandchildren Sara Lampear, Ari Lampear (Caren Minkoff), Tal Nagourney, Micah Nagourney, Shayna Liberman, Tori (Cameron) Burke, and Kayli Liberman; and her great-grandchildren Eva and Ammi Lampear. She is also survived by many loving cousins, nieces and nephews.
